As everybody with a dash of social sense told me, that could be perceived as being a bit scary, and he immediately signed off.
Bounce all that into your favourite social networking app and pull out a picture, and other privacy-leaked data of who you’ve got on your network. Wardating involves sniffing for IM packets on shared wireless cybercafe networks, and then IMing the cutest people and ask for dates. My version is for people who don’t go out much, and lack the social skills to strike up conversations event with people who owe you a favour, and are already practically in your living room anyway. Maybe you could write it as a plugin for Dashboard. (Moral and legal conundrums of sniffing people who are using your network are left as an exercise for the reader.) So I’ve been considering getting a Vonage Vo IP phone for home.
It feels a bit like I’m being held in some awful Catch 22 by the phone company here.A few months ago, he launched an online dating service, Social Grid, which he promised would "change the world." Nobody was sure if he was kidding or serious.When I meet Vuong for lunch at a hip LA diner near Beverly Hills, it's clear he's not kidding.Vuong confides that he is "socially retarded in the real world," but he comes across as just plain innocent.It's easy to imagine having a blast with him watching , a cost-benefit analysis of romance that proposes "a mathematical model that could predict and explain all human behavior pertaining to love." Lately, he's been all over the Net with his theories about using statistical analysis to find a date.
